    I had a last minute request to vend at a "crop" the I've scrapbooked at in the past. It will have approximately 30 women from 10AM -11PM and I have to offer a basket/door prize valued at $40.

    Any ideas on how to come up with this since I don't have products to put in it?

    Any ideas on flyers I can put at everyone's seat, what I can make (access to microwave) and draw attention to my table?

    My bookings are dead this summer so I'm really hoping to drum up some business!

    Do the 13 min cobbler cake in the microwave (SOOO easy and yummy) in the DCB.

    A GC is a great thing if you don't have products- add a SB if you have one as well.

    Do a flyer with available dates you have and offer them something..i.e. $10 off their show order if they book a show one of those dates; a free product (something from supply so a spreader, i-slice, etc. that you can get cheap). Or a free FALL product when they come out valued around $10...you know PC will come out with something! ha ha :)

    The Tool-Turn-About can be something you can include in that Door Prize- since it's great for Scrapbookers too! :D It's $18. Maybe add various gadgets to put into it:
    Set of Bamboo Spoons ($9.50), Mini-Spatula ($4.50), Twix-it Clips ($5.50 if you do a full pack, an i-Slice ($3.75) or Quik-cut Knife ($1.75). With the I-slice, that's $41.25, or with the Knife- it's $39.25 & include a Season's Best!

    Just trying to think of tools that are good for the kitchen, but also a craft room (like the TTA or the i-Slice. Even the clips could work somewhere- bags of doo-dads, etc).

    Put it in a pretty cellophane bag and ribbons to attract attention.

    Bobbi, Love that idea, that's actually why I first bought my Tool-Turn-About. Alas, I don't have any products on hand to use.

    Didn't really think of a GC with SB but I think that might be better...that way, I won't really have to pay full price if they book, order additional stuff, etc.

    I have the Simple additions small bowls and caddy...I thought maybe those with a couple bags of candies or something else clever to put in them...

    You could put some scraping tools or roll up some scraping paper to put in the different sections of the tool turn around along w/a SB or GC.

    I did a crop this past weekend (9am - 9pm but I left at 6pm because most every other vendor left and no one seemed interested in my table anymore) - they ask for a $10 gift for door prize and I gave a SB, a Quikut knife, a handy scraper, and a mini tart shaper (good to use when using the rub -ons thingys)

    I didn't make anything - didn't think about that but I did sell alot. I really didn't realize how much I have on hand - kept buying things from each show to add up for guest special or to help host - never more then $20. So I sold more than $110 in cash and carry and had $85 in products to be ordered.

    This only cost my $20 - $10 to set up and $10 for door prize.

    I've started doing a gift certificate for a "free" show - I bring the food for the demo. Gives someone a great "gift" and I get a customer/booking. I like to do Power Cooking for it.

    My day was somewhat successful. I gave the Simple Additions small bowls with caddy as the door prize (was supposed to be a $40 value but I put it in a nice basket and called it a day). I brought cupcakes made in our floral cupcake tray and the Mexican Chicken Lasagna in the DCB...it was a great hit!

    No sales but one booking, and a few maybes (one pregnant and due next week, the other redoing her kitchen in September and wants all new stuff!)

    I may go back in August which might be good to catch both the other ones. Plus, I did guess the number of candies in the batter bowl and win the candies and the bowl. So I got a number of door prize slips to follow up on.
